It would have been nice if only Vulcans could do it and they had some kind of special sensor neutralizing things in their alien Vulcan hands or something..
But in the TNG ep with Spock and Data, Data figured it out and Vulcan Nerve pinched some guy. What kind of shit is that. Vulcan Nerve pinches aren't special if any asshole can do it.
And Data has this powerful new weapon and never used it again
Man fuck Data
